I live in a house in the woods, ants are not uncommon. Usually we get a few "foragers", they are around for a week, then they are gone. Recently, we have been seeing 15-20 per day in our kitchen, only in our kitchen! They are in the garbage can, and the dishwasher.
Can they get into the dishwasher by going down the sink drain? Is there a chance we have a nest forming?
Should I pull out the dishwasher to check, or wait and get Drione dust, and then pull it out? Or should i just wait, as it has only been about a week since we have seen our first?
Thanks, Chris
